Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm trying to add a comment to a post I read on blogger.com. Here is the post: http://hacksoflife.blogspot.com/2006/01/iswindowvisible-can-be-deceiving.html#comment-form

I try to add the comment using the OpenID URL https://openid.stackexchange.com/, but it fails. Here is what it says when I use that URL:

Do you wish to share your information with www.blogger.com?

I click confirm and then it brings me back to the blogger.com page where it says "Your OpenID credentials could not be verified."

I don't know why this is happening. My normal browser is Firefox, but I also tried in a virtual machine using Internet Explorer. It's the same in both. I also tried the URLs that are given on the Stack Exchange page, but they don't work either.

<link rel="openid2.provider" href="https://openid.stackexchange.com/openid/provider">
<link rel="openid2.local_id" href="https://openid.stackexchange.com/user/12345-edited"> 

How do I post comments to blogger.com using my Stack Exchange OpenID?

This is super annoying. On my StackExchange OpenID page I can see these similar records for Authenticating to blogger.com, yet on the person's blog it says "Your OpenID credentials could not be verified". I don't want to use social media accounts to validate on public blog sites, that just feels wrong. – Davos Jan 23 '13 at 0:18

That relying party appears to be failing OpenId discovery pretty spectacularly. Not much I can do from this end, unfortunately. -ing this accordingly.

Would you mind sending an official-ish email to blogger with the details so they are at least aware of it? Sending one as a user is likely to get them to blame stackexchange, rather than looking into it further. – Adam Davis Mar 2 '12 at 0:46

I disagree. I'm trying to get spring-security to accept OpenID for a project, testing with my stackexchange OpenID. If I read section 11.2 of the OpenID 2.0 spec (openid.net/specs/openid-authentication-2_0.html) correctly, the XRDS document found after applying discovery to the claimed ID (openid.stackexchange.com/user/11111-1111....) should contain a <Type>.../signon</Type> service element. It does not, and I think this is why spring-security rejects it. My Google ID is accepted, so my setup can't be completely wrong. ;) And I guess blogspot rejects them for the same reason. – user1252434 Jan 14 '13 at 10:15
